Murdoch meets family of murdered MIlly Dowler

News Corp boss Rupert Murdoch today met Milly Dowler’s family, as he increased his efforts to repair the damage caused by the News of the World hacking into her mobile phone.

The media mogul held talks with the murdered schoolgirl’s parents, Sally and Bob, and her sister Gemma in a London hotel.

Police claims that Milly’s phone had been hacked after her disappearance triggered a string of damaging revelations which led to the closure of the tabloid last week.

The Dowlers have threatened to sue Murdoch over the scandal.
